Katusha, Girl Soldier of the Great Patriot War: Book Two: The Shaking of the Earth
Tank battles across the Eastern Front!
Following the events of Book One, Katusha, and her adopted sister Milla join the Red Army and are sent to tank school. Trained to operate the mighty T-34, Katusha fights from countryside to cities, but as in any way there is always a steep price to for victory, and Katusha must deal with her own devastating personal loss.
This is a story of courage, survival and family; of self-sacrifice, betrayal, brutality, and suffering; it is a tale told against the backdrop of the bloodiest conflict in human history: the 1941-1945 war between Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia.
Seen through the eyes of a Ukrainian teenage girl, KATUSHA is not only a coming-of-age story, but a carefully researched depiction of one of the most turbulent and important periods of the twentieth century.
